There is still plenty of time to submit a proposal for the fall 2016 Northeast Popular/American Culture Association conference! We are seeking papers on popular and American culture, broadly construed, for our annual fall conference to be held on Friday October 21 and Saturday October 22, 2016, on the campus of Keene State College in Keene, NH. NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.
You can find general information about the 2016 conference here: https://nepca.wordpress.com/2016-conference/. You can find the list of area chairs here: https://nepca.wordpress.com/nepca-area-chairs/ . For more info on a specific area, click on its link (if applicable) on that page.
Please submit your proposal via the online form; the link to the form can be found on the main 2016 conference page (scroll down to the "How do I submit a proposal?" section). Both proposals for individual papers and complete panels will be considered. The deadline for proposals is June 15, 2016.
The 2016 conference site, Keene State College, is located in Keene, New Hampshire, which is less than 2 hours from Boston, about 2 hours from Providence, 2.5 hours from Portland Maine, half an hour from Brattleboro Vermont, less than 4 hours from New York City, and 4 hours from Montreal.
